Ataraxis Iteritas is a new member of the line of groundbreaking oscillators from Noise Engineering: one that excels at all things glitchy, sputtery, and unabashedly digital. This is one for lovers of sonic chaos and digital defects.
While its siblings Basimilus Iteritas Alter and Manis Iteritas are themselves full synthesizer voices, the Ataraxic Iteritas is an oscillator, albeit a peculiar one. Taking a cue from its predecessor (the Ataraxic Translatron), the AI is geared toward glitchy sounds reminiscent of old video game consoles, circuit-bent electronics, and other similar devices of sonic devastation. Adding many more tonal controls than its forebear, the AI utilizes wavefolding, distortion, and amplitude modulation to shape three-bit tables, leading to everything from grinding drones, piercing leads, and outright dial-up modem chaos.
The Ataraxic Iteritas pairs beautifully with analog filters and waveshapers to tame the digital harshness—or run things fully open to witness the raw power of this pseudo-chiptune sound source. As Noise Engineering themselves say, AI is guaranteed to one-up any fax machine.
